been thinking about depression and the words we use. i have found within my experiences with myself and others that we more often than not put ourselves down. expression within communication, especially when depressed needs to be adjusted. some do not practice what they preach when encouraging better cognitive self talk. words need to be used in context, a slight adjustment can and may greatly alter our feelings and state of mind. hope the topic is useful. cheers. jamie idea

Hi Jamie,

That's such a good point. I think most of us are too hard on ourselves, and that seems to be the case even more when we are depressed. You're also right about practicing what we preach.....a lot of us are better at dishing out the positive advice than we are listening to our own advice...lol. Human nature, perhaps, but your point is a valid one! Positive self-talk does work! Glad you brought this up.

cheers, kitt and raniah. forgiveness starts with us first. took a while to work it out, yet i got there! when we forgive ourselves, we can truely forgive those who have hurt us. self forgiveness enables us to live in the future, for the future and not the past. jamie scool
